Since then, he had lived at Wal- · tcr Reed Hospital here, in recent years stayinc in a wing built especially for him. Death was caused by a blood clot which reached his lung. : Maj. Gen. George Beach--thc i hospital commandant, who met Mr. " Truman at thc train on his arrival . from Philadelphia--reported that | the underlying cause was "arterio- j sclerosis" and "auricular fibrilla- ; tion." At Pershing's bedside were hi.-; son. Warren, his sister. Miss May Pcrshing. and his longtime physic- inn. Maj. Gen. Shelley Marietta. The American flag was dropped to half-staff throughout the capital as a grateful nation prepared to accord "highest honors to one of its greatest military heroes. To Be Buried Monday In response to Pcrshing's longtime wish, he will be buried Monday in Arlington National Military Cemetery where lie so many of hit comrades-in-arms. But before the body is borne across thc Potomac to the rolling Arlington Hills, it will be taken to the Capitol to lie in state on a catafalque" originally built for the remains of George Washington. The catafalque was to have been the last resting place of the father of his country, but actually Washington's body was never moved from Mt Vernon. ir- view of thc terms of his will. Pershing's body will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda on Sunday ?nd on Monday morning until 12 noon, est The public will be permitted to pass thc bier from 2 p. m. until 8 p. m. Sunday and from 8 a. m. until noon Monday. At that hour a formal procession \\~ill escort the body through the capital to the Arlington amphithe- atre--resting place of the Unknown Soldier. There services will be held at 2 p. m. As General of thc Armies. Pershing was thc nation's highest-ranking military man Only one other American. George "Washington, has held that title. Several other military Icader.s of the Civil War and World War 2 have held thc title of Genera! of thc Army. Al! during the Second World War. Pershing received a full report twice a month from General George C. Marshall, his aide of 1917. Pershing had warned that the United States might become cm- broiled in a second European war as early as April 1937 At that time, he said: "In view of world conditions today, the United States should be prepared to mobilize half a million men at once, completely equipped ·.viih the most modern arms anci fullv sucplicd in every particular. With this army of 500.000 thc nation could deal with its enemy -.vhile the great civilian army was bein? trained."
